Sixty per cent of households in western Kenya are dependent on fish as a source of protein. But overfishing in Lake Victoria has depleted fish stocks and led to price rises.
The Kenyan government has responded by building fish ponds and promoting fish farming.
Farm Africa is supporting the government’s policy by establishing a network of aqua shops, which are an invaluable source of quality support and training for Kenya’s new fish farmers.
We are working with community entrepreneurs to sharpen their technical and business skills, and identify aquaculture business opportunities.
So far 12 aqua shops, supporting more than 4,000 farmers, have been set up.
Support our work today and help rural African families end their reliance on food aid.
